RE: Tissue Processor Alarms

From:"Carson, Karla" <>

We have them and they are very helpful if you are a big lab.  They allow
someone to be called at home and get the processor back on line if possible
or switch to a back up unit.  We are a regional lab and service 8 pathology
departments and not one of them is too understanding if there is a delay.

		I would like to get a general consensus on the merits of
external alarms on
		tissue processors which would alert staff in case of an
error during the
		night or on weekends.
		Thanking you in advance,
